I believe the fanatics used to those the slow shows. Slow there's nothing there,unwanted feedback,constantly trying to keep in tune, ridiculous banter and not just getting it together. Look ballads belong w/ the rest of the show as a mix that usually comes to some sort of climax. On the so called
slow show they would end w/ a very loud and rockin JBG as a
tease, see if were in the mood we could do it. I pay for tickets to be entertained not to be bummed out. If it 's a free gig or a benifit well your a professional musician so produce or try coal mining or better yet roping horses things they can really relate to.The really bad shows I'v
seen were not salvagable and the scene ,well I can watch a girl in a peasant dress twerl 20 times and that's enough for me.Then you have the nights that are just magic.There's
a flow when all is aligned all the gear is right the sets make sence and then they take to that place music has never taken you before.That's the difference between a so called slow show and an ass kicker as voices are on and the playing
is as fluid as mercury.
